Paper Abstract

The coherent OCDMA system could suffer from severe multiple access interference (MAI) and beat noise, which limit the maximum number of active users that can be supported in a network. One effective method to reduce the beat noise as well as the MAI noise is to lower the interference level by adopting ultra-long optical code. Applying optical thresholding technique is also crucial to enable data-rate detection for achieving a practical OCDMA system. In this paper, we review the recent progress in the key enabling techniques for asynchronous coherent OCDMA: the novel encoder/decoders including spatial lightwave phase modulator, micro-ring resonator for spectral phase coding and superstructured FBG (SSFBG) and AWG type encode/decoder for time-spreading coding; optical thresholding techniques with PPLN and nonlinearity in fiber. The FEC has also been applied in OCDMA system recently. With 511-chip SSFBG and SC-based optical thresholder, 10-user, truly-asynchronous gigabit OCDMA transmission has been successfully achieved. Most recently, a record throughput 12×10.71 Gbps truly-asynchronous OCDMA has been demonstrated by using the 16×16 ports AWG-type encoder/decoder and FEC transmit ITU-T G.709 OTN frames.
